Pope Francis Tries His Hand at Vlogging
to Promote Interfaith Peace
When Pope Francis cares deeply about
something, it shows.
On Wednesday, Francis launched a monthly
video prayer series with an emotional call for peace between people of
"Many think differently, feel differently,
seeking God or meeting God in different ways," the pontiff said. "We
are all children of God."
Francis, like other pope's before him, has
long shared monthly prayers with the world, but never before via video. His
prayer for January, he said, is "that sincere dialogue among men and women
of different faiths may produce the fruits of peace and justice."
Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths are represented in the video.
